Hello, I am new to the forum. There seems to be a large number of skilled users, so I am sure somebody can help. I am having an issue joining multiple roofs together in Revit Architecture 2012. I have used the "Roof Join" command, but the roof will not join correctly. Is there a way to override this problem? I tried adding another level and adding another roof, but that wouldn't join correctly. I'm not sure if I'm on the right track, or way off. Any help would be very appreciated.

 

Thanks

Your image doesn't help us at all.  Everthing looks right to me.

 

From what I can see, this roof could be done from one roof sketch.

I actually just found the answer to my own problem. The solution involved extending the main or largest roof accross the building and then using the "Roof By Extrusion" command for the gable ends. Thanks for the help, and I will try to upload a better example in the future!

Not sure about your plan but here is a single roof sketch.

I will have to say, I haven't felt this stupid in quite some time. I reached the same end result that you did, but you took a much quicker approach. This software is so complex, that it becomes very easy to over think the smallest of problems. Lesson learned, don't overthink the software.

Thanks for the help.

I was able to join a hip roof to a gable roof by doing the following:

1.- choose roof by extrusion

2.- In skecth mode I skecthed the shape  and hieght of my gable roof( it is important not to have a closed loop when using the extrusion tool).  For the roof by footprint tool you must close the loop. Hopefully this step should solve your problem.

3.- Now that I created a hip roof using the "roof by footprint" tool and created a gable roof using the "roof by extrusion tool", I can now join the hip roof to the gable roof.

4.- I chose the the join the roof command, clicked on the edge of the hip roof and clicked on the edge of the gable roof.  Now both roofs are now joined. Both roofs are joined. However, I have not figured out why when I click on one roof, why both roof don't highlight as 1 whole roof.

If someone can explain to me step 4 further, I would appreciated it.
